Classes despite disadvantaged areas and early school leaving: must have a maximum of 25, 26 or 27 pupils

The information session on the proposals for the formation of the classes in the derogation in disadvantaged areas or with the completion of the high school is just over. The parameters taken as a reference are the ESCS index on the socio-economic status of the area of ​​interest, and the school drop-out index.

In the geographical areas, in which the identified parameters present a low socio-economic level and a high level of early graduation, the USR can organize classes with a maximum number of students of 25, 26 and 27 students in primary school, secondary I ° and II ° degrees.

Present the anief information. Nonnis said that “while on the identification of sociocultural parameters and reference school dropout there are objectively recognizable and shareable data, the administration chooses to identify, within the range of fluctuations, the maximum and minimum thresholds for the attributions seem less acceptable classes and derogation; For example, in the high school, the ESCS economic index fluctuates at national level between +1.78 (in terms of economic growth) and -2.86 (which on the other hand means local impoverishment). The administration’s unacceptable choice is not to identify the low growth threshold at the level of value 0 (which means on economic stability without growth) but the negative value of -0.3534, which means a small but marked decrease. Therefore, it is necessary for the administration that there is an obvious state of economic depression to intervene with the attribution of the parameters of the derogation to the number of students identified by Presidential Decree 81 of 2009. A similar calculation is made with the school. Failure index. “

Marcello Pacifico stated that “Once again, the safety regulations introduced by the Ministerial Decree of 18 December 1975, which identify the minimum square meter per student and 1.85 square meters, have not been respected, the problem is twofold, on the one hand, the measure prescribed today , for that no more charge. carried by the state, which means that in the training of staff we do not want to take into account once again the necessary investments that the school building desperately needs, nor the recovery of infections in the school environment fundamentally associated with the non- Anhale with interpersonal distances. It is necessary to rethink the whole system of staff training, which allows the opening of school buildings and premises by Law 133 of 2008, which simultaneously intervenes to restore school attendance in severely depressed small towns and to comply with including safety standards. Anticovid Normen“.

They tell us – explains the leader, Marcello Pacifico – that what we have is a normal school organization, but the current security legislation also requires that in order to abide by the rules, there must be at least 1.80-1.90 square meters of space per pupil in the classroom: that is to say in the rule . do not happen because in most cases our classrooms are smaller than 35 square meters“.
